Venue

Lusail Sports Arena is an indoor sports arena in Qatar. It has a capacity of 15,300. The arena was also built to host matches of the 2015 World Men's Handball Championship. It is rated with 3 GSAS Stars (Global Sustainability Assessment System) for its design.

As per the initial plans, it was supposed to accommodate approx. 18.000 spectators, however, the will of the Qatar Olympic Committee, to create a venue that would primarily provide comfort to the visitors, led to the decision for more spacious seats transforming it into one of the most “spectator-friendly” venues in the world.
